Landi and Joshua in Chicago, IL

The color scheme combined black and white with orange, the groom’s favorite color. "We had to make sure it didn’t look Halloween-y, since the wedding was in October," Landi says. "So we used orange sparingly—only in the floral arrangements." Centerpieces were an eclectic combination of orange roses and orchids in vases of different sizes and heights, paired with citrus fruits and ceramic orbs. Guests dined on the couple’s favorite comfort food: fried chicken, with grits and greens. Catering by Food For Thought.
